Striped Series '78 Eruption White with Black Stripes Relic Used Item Description

This is a very lightly used and still in super clean condition EVH '78 Eruption! Just very light surface marks if you look close enough. The original tremolo arm is included. An official and affordable replica of the famous black-and-white striped single-pickup guitar featured on the cover of Van Halens 1978 debut album. Eddie played this guitar on his unprecedented and mind-blowing “Eruption” guitar solo, thus its nickname, and almost immediately, this monumental instrument became a timeless icon, symbolic of a paradigm shift in guitar-driven rock and roll.

Back when this trailblazing album first appeared, nobody had ever seen or heard a guitar like that because no such guitar ever existed. What was this? You couldn’t buy one. That’s because he made it himself. The 22-year-old Eddie Van Halen had the mind of not only a great musician, but also of an innovative inventor—a constant tinkerer who was always messing with his gear. Eddie would say it was out of necessity as no off-the-shelf guitar had the features he needed to really do his job and realize his full potential. So, he took matters into his own capable hands — refretting the neck, installing a humbucking pickup which he potted in paraffin wax, as well a single master volume knob (famously labeled as “Tone”), brass nut and tailpiece from a ’58 Strat, cutting out and mounting his own homemade black and of course, coming up with iconic striped motif.

This new Striped Series '78 Eruption features a 12-16" compound fretboard radius with 22 jumbo frets, a single EVH Wolfgang humbucker pickup, and brass nut and six-saddle vintage Fender® Stratocaster synchronized tremolo bridge that has a 43mm brass block!

Includes: Tremolo Arm
